I would have liked to have walked up close to the monument, but despite it being an hour after the opening time on the notice board by the gates, both entrances were firmly padlocked and there was nobody around. Disappointing, but you can still appreciate it from a distance. It’s an impressive structure set against a majestic backdrop of the mountains surrounding Franschhoek.

You must not miss this as it's part of the history of Franschhoek. Good thing is that it is very easy to find at the top of the street.

They obviously have invested a lot into improvements here. It used to be not much to look at, but now it's an extensive history line of the hugenots, some south african memories too and even a parfume bottle exibition

The Monument is next to the museum. The museum is interesting and the monument is just worth a short look.

We could not access this iconic monument of Franschoek on a Sunday. Very dissapointing as all access gates were closed. A note on the main gate advised to fetch a key at the church across the road.

I've been before but did not pay to look around the memorial, so disappointed that this time you had to pay to walk around. I didn't pay so took photos from outside.

The Monument has been cordoned off and can only be visited if you purchase a ticket for the Museum (and the perfume museum) - at a cost of R80. This may be fine for foreign tourists, but for locals passing by with just a few minutes to spare, it is not. It is most unfortunate that local visitors, in particular, are being deprived of the opportunity to see this beautiful and significant monument close-up. We passed the monument several times, and there were always people photographing it from the road, who evidently also felt that they could not spend R80 to walk right up to it.

It's hard to miss, but not easy to access. You have to get keys from elsewhere to fully explore the monument and the museum. It just sounded like too much admin and I wasn't that keen on going to the place across to get the keys and and and.

We walked here from La Fontaine as a nice walk out of town. It's a nice monument, very well kept and looked after. Quite a few people were visiting whilst we were there, but it wasn't crowded.
Worth an hour or so.

The Huguenot Memorial Monument and Museum is a must if you are in Franschhoek. It is a beautiful monument and has so much meaning to the French people who came to South Africa.
